“This is the perfect opportunity to shake-off a few old habits and develop new robust ones. In fact lockdown and its post period is just the right time to develop a lifetime healthy habits.”

Addressing a virtual health session on ‘present Covid time and your health ‘, , Dr. Harinder Singh Bedi, director of cardiovascular endovascular & thoracic sciences at Ivy Hospital, Mohali said that one needs to get active as it improves immunity.  If you have space, create a small gym. One can follow an online trainer and there are a number of apps.

He said further that number of TV shows and apps can guide on yoga. Connect with your inner-self and discard negative thoughts with meditation and rejuvenation.

This is also the perfect time to spend quality time with your family. Spend more time with your spouse and play with children. Involve in conversations with your parents and learn dancing with your kids as they are the best teachers, he asserted.

Talking about the diet he informed that eat a prudent diet low in saturated fats and calories. Eat lots of fresh seasonal fruits and green leafy vegetables as they are all easily available at your doorstep.  Avoid fatty fried and non-vegetarian foods.

Avoid tobacco, coffee, tea, or alcohol as they increase blood pressure. Take up gardening. Know and manage your bp and sugar levels. Sit in the sun to improve vitamin D level and to reduce seasonal affective disorder, he remarked.

Don’t ignore symptoms if you are feeling unwell. Consult doctors online and avoid trips to the hospital unless there is an emergency. Do not believe in the innumerable ‘sure-shot’ therapies that you get on Whatsapp before checking with your doctor, informed Dr. Bedi.
